Gorilla Biscuits At The Berlin Wall
as some people may have already noticed, google has added a link to their homepage advertising #banbossy, a movement to teach young girls how to be independent and assertive. from the website’s home page:
"When a little boy asserts himself, he’s called a ‘leader’. Yet when a little girl does the same, she risks being branded ‘bossy’. Words like bossy send a message: don’t raise your hand or speak up. By middle school, girls are less interested in leading than boys- a trend that continues into adulthood. Together we can encourage girls to lead."
on the website, you can “pledge to ban bossy”, and that will automatically share the site on your facebook. you can share on other social media sites as well. the site has videos explaining their cause, lists of helpful tips for parents to help their daughters, and tons of other really cool stuff. if you’re not already sold on it, the movement is partially funded by the girl scouts (just one more reason to add to the list of why theyre becoming freaking awesome).
please spread around to let others know!!

See that? Look at those sequence of panels and tell me that is anything less than than baller. If Stark or Wayne or Reed had done( and they probally have lets be real) some shit like this, you’d see posts for days with some shit like “CAN WE JUST TALK ABOUT THIS FOR A SECOND” 10k notes.
But people wanna call T’Challa a Marty Stu
Fuck out my face.
Wakanda has tech to make firearms useless..has had it for centuries. Let that shit sink in…let it marinate in your brain for a bit.
Go, T’Challa, go.
but also, like, contextually, let that sink in.
the “Firearms supremacy” myth (I have my reasons for calling it a myth, but yes, there is a very real technical reality to weapons to supremacy, but that’s for another post) is one of the great narratives of colonization.
"It’s ours because we outgunned them, fair and square" uh-huh, sure.
So like, that tech is literally a refutation, especially since secrecy about just how advanced Wakandan science has gotten is a major theme.
Just, y’know, had to throw that in there.
